Merging Two into One

I've decided to go back to one blog, because I can't keep up with them both. From now on, you can find me here. It won't just be talk about eating. It'll be life in general. Follow me there if you care to - I'd like to keep it more simple for everyone!

A Short Break

I've been on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the last week. Long story short: I had some blood work done last week, and am awaiting the results of some tests that could reveal alot of things about me, particularly some of my weight issues, but we'll see.

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. And no matter how it all turns out, I think this may be the kick I needed to take care of myself!

Baby Steps (again)

My inspiration from vacation was short-lived. My transition back to work was completely brutal, and I've never been so frustrated in a working situation in my life.

I wake up most days feeling like i'm grabbing for something - but I don't know what. I can't keep a handle on work, and when I get home, I'm exhausted, and feel like i've been neglecting alot of things, including my husband, my house, and some of my friends and family.

One thing I have been doing is making an effort to take care of myself. I haven't been so good about planning my meals, but when I do eat them (and I'm really not snacking!), I am making good choices. I went to the gym Sunday and Monday night, and i am going back tonight -- i'm dressed and ready to go.

It's been a long time since i've put myself first, and i'm so fortunate that Chris has really pushed and supported that. He's picked up a lot of my slack. He's hugged me when I needed it, and he's been there to reassure me when i've woken up in a fit of tears and rage.

I'm taking it one day at a time, but trying my best to approach it while looking out for myself!

A GREAT Monday Night

So I skipped out on the gym tonight, because I was sore from the manual labor I did at work Saturday (YES, Saturday...all day!). but it was totally worth it. You can tell by the photo below of myself and Mr. Rashawn Ross - who is the coolest thing since sliced bread!

Back from Canada, Eh?

We returned around 9pm from an AMAZING trip to Canada. I will definitely elaborate later, but it was just fantastic, and i've really come back with a better attitude about a lot of things. I'm ready to tackle whatever comes at work, work through some of my work issues with a refreshed mind, and darnit if i'm not so inspired by the foods we ate on this trip that i'm itching to get in the kitchen and cook up some tasty healthy meals for us!

We have wonderful WONDERFUL friends who hosted us for five nights, and we did a couple of nights on our own as well. We haven't been on a week-long vacation since our honeymoon - and have decided it's now a mandatory to do that at least once each year, instead of a bunch of short vacations!

We're thinking of a trip in December - for my 30th. Originally we were going to have a party of some sort, but now we've got the travel bug. I'd love some ideas for destination ideas around Christmas that aren't over the top expensive!
